Couple of things!

First, it came to my attention that it is in the fine print of Pinterest that one must have the permission of the blog owner to pin things from him/her site. I hadn't known about this, but you can go here to Laura Candler's blog to read more about it!
I have put up a graphic on my blog that gives you blanket permission to pin anything I post here! Also, if anyone wishes to help me better 'show off' my creations, I'd be very obliged!

I made what I think is a fun game using Dolch phrases. The idea behind Dolch phrases is to encourage children to begin to read more than one word at a type and develop fluency. I have made a game using the first 48 Dolch phrases called "Roll a Phrase". This is not my original idea; a colleage had a similar game in her classroom. The group of students is given a page of Dolch phrases and a dice. Each student rolls the dice and then reads the phrase listed next to the number he/she rolled on the dice. When each student has read each phrase, they can move on to another page! I am charging $2 for this game, but I think it is worth it!! Come check it out here!

Of course, these phrases can be used in many other different ways, and I'd love to hear more about how you use them, if you so choose! Please visit often as I am going to try to make games containing the other phrases as well!

Again, thank you for stopping by! I LOVE comments!! :)
